Charles Kelley’s solo career has gotten off to a bit of a rocky start.
Kelley, who is part of the Grammy award-winning group Lady Antebellum, branched out on his own to start a solo career during the band’s current hiatus. He released his first solo single, “The Driver” on September 28, which also features Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay.
“The Driver” has received positive reviews since its release, and was recently nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.
In addition to his new single, Kelley announced that he would be starting The Driver Tour on November 28 through January 2016. Kelley was scheduled to make appearances at small venues across the country, such as theaters and clubs, something he was excited for.
“I’ve played some great shows at arenas and amphitheaters, but I’m definitely looking forward to getting into clubs with people grabbing on your legs and being able to see every face,” he said after announcing his tour.
But at the start of his tour, Kelley canceled shows in Charlotte and Atlanta, and now he has announced on his website that he is canceling the remainder of his tour dates for 2015, but doesn’t say why:
A portion of upcoming tour dates is moving to early 2016. For more information on rescheduled dates, check back here. Thanks for your continued support.
Stay tuned for major album release news coming soon!
Kelley’s opening act for the tour, Maren Morris, also revealed in an interview with the Dallas Observer that the tour has indeed been canceled for this year, and that she plans on hitting the road on her own in January.
We hope that Kelley is able to pick back up with his tour in 2016! In the meantime, enjoy watching the official music video for his Grammy-nominated debut solo single, “The Driver” below.
